Jason Prior Scores In Newcastle Reserves 3-1 Win Over Wigan


Newcastle Reserves beat Wigan Reserves 3-1 at home this afternoon, and Bognor Regis trialist Jason Prior scored the third Newcastle goal, on his Newcastle debut, and in front of a watching Alan Pardew.

Jason Prior – scored a nice goal from 14 yards out

With Alan Pardew, John Carver and Steve Stone all in attendance the Reserves ran out worthy winners, and certainly it seems the Reserve team manager Willie Donachie was delighted for Jason.

And it was a terrific finish from the 23 year-old,  as he hit the ball beautifully home into the top corner of the net from about 14 yards out,  after being played in by Greg McDermott.

The big center-forward has been training over the last few days with the Newcastle squad, and he wore the number 9 shirt today.

And the lad has impressed Scot Willie  Donachie with both his play and his  attitude, as Willie had this to say about Jason after the game:

“He’s a lovely guy with a great attitude.” “It’s great having him around – and he’s a goalscorer.”

“We dominated without really creating great chances,” “We had a lot of shots from distance but I don’t think we got behind them enough.”

“It was a competent performance after the first 15 minutes, where I thought we were a little bit rusty. After that, we did well up until the final third.”

“With respect to Wigan, who are a very honest, good team, we’ve got better players so I was disappointed to give a sloppy goal away and be drawing, and in danger of not even winning the game.”

“That was disappointing but in the end our class told and we scored again and again, and deservedly won.”

For Newcastle Reserves,  young  emerging center-back 17 year-old Remie Street scored Newcastle’s first goal just before half time.

But after Newcastle had completely dominated the game,  Wigan broke away quickly after 64 minutes and Danny Redmond’s cross was put home by a completely unmarked  Jordan Rug, and it was a disappointing goal to concede.

After 72 minutes  Newcastle went back in front with a good goal from Australian Brad Inman, who had come on as a substitute for an injured Sammy Ameobi (oh no!) after 56 minutes.

A long ball was played by Phil Airey onto Haris Vuckic, and the Slovenian U21 International put the ball nicely through for Inman who coolly slotted the ball past goalkeeper Calvin Hare to make it 2-1.

And then five minutes later  Greg McDermott, the son  of Terry McDermott,   won the ball on the half way line and moved forward before putting the ball inside to Jason Prior,  and Jason smashed the ball into the top corner of the net from about 14 yards out.

A nice striker’s goal by Jason.

It remains to be seen if Jason can do enough to win a contract at Newcastle, but it will not harm him having scored a very good goal this afternoon in front of the watching Alan Pardew in his very first game for Newcastle Reserves.

We’re kind of rooting for Jason, if the truth be told.

    The more I hear about this kid the more I think he might be able to do a job for us. I’ve heard that he’s been excellent on the training ground and is making a name for himself in the club. Hope he gets a contract like.

    Throw him in the deep end No9 shirt, and to get a start against QPR 😉 He’d probably die of a heart attack!!

    Hope he comes through good – seems like a nice guy?

    Loved Agent Stardusts optimism about how things are going to turn out at the club, but just cant see it, i hope im wrong and ashley turns out to be a genius on both structure of club and recruitment of decent staff (carr,pardew,coaches etc..)
    wow it would blow my mind if we could actually compete with all the clubs who enjoy spending bundles and bundles of cash for no more reward, you would think it would put pressure on old king kenny if we finished above them, oh it would be so good, i repeat so so good.

    Here’s hoping for the best for the lad.
    Anyone coming in will always get decent reviews. U don’t get asked in an interview; “So how was the trialist Willie?” “Well, we’d expect more of him, can’t see him stay”.
    Ofc u want to boost the lads confidence to get the most of him.
    There’s also a match behind closed door, he’ll probs take part it that too.
    Hope it comes true for him tho, and that he comes good for us. Won’t have any pressure when coming from the non-league 😉

    According to @skysportsmobile on twitter, Demba Ba’s agent has said Man utd and PSG are interested in signing him…

    This makes me think that it is Dembas agent spreading roumors about his contract to the press to make other clubs want to sign him, therefore his agent gets paid tons more money 5 months after getting paid tons by nufc…
    Agents = greedy b@stards…

    Its a nice story and i hope the lad is enjoying his chance, must be daunting the jump hes made from non league, not seen him play but thinking that he is going to become a newcastle player must be a 1000/1 chance, the standard of premier league football is now so high.

    It would be class if we got the new 12 grand ian wright though, more likely he will be peddled off to gateshead for the rest of the year, 6 month contract, knowing ashley and dereks generous warm nature, this is what willprobably happen.

    Ronaldeano
    The one thing i would take away from Demba Bas Agent trying to keep his client in the public eye is the fact that he stated that his clause isnt a simple 7 million or 10 milion release clause like old sour puss has hinted, he is super safe, enjoying life in the big market drinking non-alcoholic cocktails.

    SAF is not interested in Ba it is total BS, its some jumped up dick trying to think hes in the know, im sure Demba has no idea who this loon is, probably about to be sacked from his position as jnr groupie, quite clearly redknapp would like him, but he simply hasnt got the handsome good looks of Pardew so he has no chance.

    Am I the only toon fans to not have Radnapp on my sh*t list? Aye he was a bit classless but he didnt bring the subject up he merely answered journalists

    Think he is getting a bit of a raw deal in relation to this latest balls up

    Oh yh and I’ve been thinking. Do you reckon this release clause only relates to an injury issue? e.g. If your knee blows up, we will accept bids for £5 million

    Back to this prior lad, i hope he gets a chance always want to support the under dog. However im confused what a trialist has to do in order to prove they are worthy of a contract after all didnt Situ play like 4 games and score as many goals from cb?! Seems a hard task if he failed.

    Spoke to the lad on tw@tter and he actually bothered to reply seems very down to earth.

    I despise that man. He financially ruined both Southampton and Portsmouth (yes the owners were also to blame but as soon as things got tough, he pissed off) and set both clubs back years. He abandoned us after agreeing to be our manager just to get a bigger pay day and then has the cheek to treat us like a small club. He’s currently facing tax evasion charges despite earning a shit load whilst the average person is struggling to get by. He runs his mouth like no mans business. And finally, my brother is an Arsenal fan and the two Tottenham fans I know are cocky knobs :p

    What Redknapp said was wrong , out of professional courtesy he should have shut his mouth and refused to answer the question. Can you imagine his reaction is Sir Alex or Wenger came out and said that Bale or Modric had a release clause in their contracts???
    The guy has been completely unprofessional which is not surprising given his track record

    One thing seems obvious to me, Haris Vuckic is a class above now when playing in the reserves – only there for match fitness #nufc

    Ye, expect to see him allot more from now on and in the future. The lad can play as a striker too u know, deffo a big one this lad.

    Haha fair points mate. I cant comment on the pompey or Southampton history as I know nothing about it. I dont really like the man but I dont really care enough about him to hold any ill will towards him.

    He is a pretty good English manager though and got Spurs playing some fantastic football

    He’s a huge hypocrite. You can’t talk about his players but he’s happy to unsettle other players such as Ba and as seen today, Remy of Marsielle. Reckons he could of had him a few years ago when Tottenham totally had European football and were bigger than Marsielle *rolls eyes*

    Just wait till he leaves Tottenham and things go down hill. The debt will pile up and the players will want to leave when they don’t get the European football they so deserve. I bloody hate Tottenham

    Oh yeah I dont support what he did but journos are very good at getting people to say what will make the biggest story. And although it wasen’t in the papers it was obviously fairly common knowledge for me its Ba agent who is to blame.

    Ba hasen’t touted himself, NUFC wouldnt of touted him for sale so that leave 1 other suspect imo

    Ochy – I hate the guy but because he’s a favourite of the press, he thinks he can get away with running his mouth, the sooner he leaves club football for international football the better as far as I’m concerned

    credit where credit is due, but is ‘arry really deserving of any?

    He’s had boatloads of cash at every club he’s worked at, dwindled most of it, half the players who come in now at spurs are part of deals done above his head. The team he’s got now, much like man city, can pretty much play itself if i’m perfectly honest. He’s a horrible man manager, calling his players useless on a regular basis (bent, krajncar, kaboul).

    yeah, a great english manager, that’s why there’s like five english managers in the englands top flight. *cough*
